Any Oregon myrtlewood resources?

Recently discovered how much I love turning myrtlewood, and picked up some blanks in Reedsport. Bowls turned out fantastic!

If anyone on western Oregon has a resource they’re willing to share, or blanks/wood they want to sell, I’m taking a trip down this weekend and may be able to run you down.

Hoping this yields some options outside of retail, the last trip was expensive!

Let me know if this doesn’t belong here.

I usually get some logs in about end of February to first of March. Myrtle and Madrone. Hope my log guy is still in business. Last year, I couldn't get logs because all the loggers were out harvesting all the burn areas. If I get them, especially if you can come down, I can fix you up. He supplies all the turners that make the stuff for the myrtlewood shops.

Reed for the win! I would totally come down. Play date and wood pickup.
